Christian friend, I am offering clinical services within the purview of Divine Grace and a backdrop of extensive counseling experience in both Christian and secular settings. We can agree that unlike any other philosophy or religion, the grace of God through faith alone brings spiritual renewal, psychological freedom, and happiness. Unlike any other philosophy or religion we are on the same page by the intuitive knowledge that rule-governed behavior is a dead end as far as finding spiritual and psychological relief and happiness in general. My career has been spent in the service of ameliorating psychological and spiritual suffering in the lives of individuals who have been oppressed in various ways and degrees. I am no stranger to how Christians can become spiritually ensnared and overwhelmed by trauma, choices, circumstances, and victimization but the Gospel ministers deliverance to the captives often through the means of His servants.
Having been born and raised within a Christian church and community, at an early age I made a profession of faith, completed catechism classes, received water baptism, entered into communion and performed a Christian service obligations. However, hardship, adversity, and traumatic events made a shipwreck of my faith and disquieted my emotional equilibrium for several tumultuous years. In my anger, confusion, wretchedness, despair, grief, depression, spiritual darkness, and anxiety I frantically and unsuccessfully searched for answers in academia and existentialism. Despite my searching for answers in all the wrong places which only increased my negative inner experience, God penetrated my darkness” and in the early 1970’s, found me, and re-entered my life in a dramatic “Damascus Road” fashion. My earlier commitment to Him seemed to have eroded into hopelessness, but God came and proved that He had not forsake me. in His compassion He touched me and in His grace set me free from spiritual oppression and set my faith ablaze to honor Him and to return to a path paved with His promises.
By entering into dialog, we can find the missing pieces of the puzzle of your life and complete the picture you want to have. Counseling will provide a special time for you to re-examine or notice the quality of your inner experience and whether your thoughts and your sense of self are helpful to you, to others, and to the Kingdom. Painful thoughts, emotions and memories are often involved in this process and I propose that avoiding or seeking escape from them tends to increase inner suffering. As God is compassionate with us, so should we be to ourselves. Whatever your issue, let’s embark on a journey dedicated to finding your chosen qualities of purposeful action that will ensure that you achieve your goals, fulfill your ministry, and reach your desired destination.
